AEON™ Quartz unites engineering + science with the vibrant beauty of natural quartz crystals to produce a sophisticated aesthetic kitchen and bath countertop surface solution.
Durability…AEON™ Quartz is twice as impact resistant and four times (4x) stronger than natural stone. AEON™ Quartz is also virtually maintenance free and non-porous so kitchen and bath surface areas will resist scratching, staining, and water absorption and can be cleaned with extreme ease to maintain their original appearance.
Lasting Beauty…AEON™ Quartz is composed of 93% premium grade pure natural quartz and 7% high quality polyester resin, delivering a surface with an extraordinary appearance and the real feel of natural stone.
Engineering…AEON™ Quartz is manufactured using internationally patented Bretonstone® Technology, and is responsibly sourced from the finest raw materials on earth. AEON™ Quartz is engineered from quartz crystals using a proprietary high-purity binding polymer and heavy metal-free pigment resin as a binding agent. It’s then compressed into slabs to deliver a beautiful color and texture similar to natural granite and slate. The difference you’ll notice is that AEON™ Quartz product colors are more uniform than the hue variations of most natural stone.
Price…AEON™ Quartz products are priced 10%-20% lower than traditional quartz products and offer savings in excess of $5 per square foot.
AEON™ Quartz uses only the finest quality unleaded pigments to ensure color consistency and natural beauty in several colors.
